Was looking like I wanted one or more of these...then I saw the pics with the cards and mobos laying on top of static bags. AS bags are conductive on the outside. If any of the solder joints from a capacitor with juice still left in it makes contact with the bag and thus another point on the board...well you get the idea.

This is true. Low probability but i have seen a mobo fail while lying on an anti static bag before. Of course this was 2002ish.

Would i get a dust discount? Smiley

How about you make an offer before asking for a discount....

I'm pretty interested in them. Would you take $125?

How are you using the 5870s if their fans are dead? Or have you stopped using them?



The dead fan cards I will sell for $175.  They work great and are overclockable to 975 core.

-EP

Would you be willing to do $150? I'd be willing to buy two of them if so if you're up for volume discounts.

For the Sapphire and Diamond 5870 with dead fans, I'll take $350 shipped.

You can replace the fans on the MSI with these. 2 pins, but should plug into the 4 pin connector or possibly spliceable.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835119133

MSI will also replace cards with broken fans under warranty.

If you still have the fins, they can also be superglued back on.

I'm more amazed at how much dust is on that stuff. The one fan is completely blocked! (think it's the CPU fan)
Guessing he smokes?

I was deciding to go for a vid card. Clearly shows he does not know how to take care of his hardware.

No cigarette smoke, but there may have been other smoke occurring!  l-)

How should I be taking care of my hardware?

I apologize that I came out strong.


Try not to be accident proned. Hardware will last longer if it is kept clean. I could only imagine what the temps were with all that dust.

Air cans will burn your wallet.

Air compressor will do, if you have one, use low pressure.

and then

I bought 4 x 5830's from EPiSKiNG:

1) He sent them out within a few hours after I paid him cash.
2) The cards were packed in their original boxes with original accessories and manual.
3) There was slight dust on the cards that was easily removed with compressed air.

Overall, I was very satisfied, the cards were in great condition, and I wouldn't hesitate to buy other used parts from him.
